Twista’s ‘Crook County’ Album is Now Available for Streaming [LISTEN]
Twista dropped his 10th LP Crook County today (July 7), an album that's about his hometown of Chicago and hip-hop's generation gap. Some of the features on the project include Blac Youngsta, Jeremih, B. Scott and Vic Spencer, and production was handled by beatmakers like Zaytoven and Zenzan Beats.
The last time we received a Twista album was 2014's Dark Horse, and since then his label Get Money Gang Records has switched distribution companies from Capitol to Empire.
In regards to the new LP, the 43-year-old said it's about the plight of his city and the entire genre of hip-hop.
"Crook County got me thinking about what my city is and hip-hop's conflict between old and new," he told XXL. "The project is my vision of where I'm at in the music game right now, bridging the gap between the youth and myself. What I wanted to focus on was not necessarily so much the guys that were on the forefront of Chicago right now but just do it with that whole background scene a little bit. Like these guys that could sell out a Chicago crowd, and you know who the hell they are."
